Going to order an SCT next week.. Questions..

So first off Iím going to order the SCT X3. My questions are, Does it matter where I get it from? Is one place better then another for some reason? My truck is all stock besides a lift, 35ís and a turbo back 4Ē MBRP no cat or muff. I have the ford ESP on it. I talked to a mechanic at my local ford dealer and he said that if I have any issues with my truck to return the truck to stock setting and that no one would know I had a programmer on my truck and they would cover any issues, is this true? It there any way that ford would know I had a tune in my truck? And last of all what would be a good all around tune that I should get? I was the most power I can have with out having problems. I donít beat the crap out of my truck but would like to spin the tires and take off hard here and there. And I would love to see some smoke too! Any help? Thanks. Oh and I just ordered an edge insight cts so im good there!

04 F250 PSD Ext cab, 4" Lift 35's, MBRP 4" Turbo Back no cat or muff, Glass tinted. Insight CTS. 100k on the od. SCT with IDP tune.

search the forum, if they pull ur heads off they can tell it was tuned, and with the cts u will be able to monitor the egt's to keep ur motor in one piece, my advice, before the sct get a coolant filter kit....

I have looked around a bit, I saw someone say that with their tunes there is no evidence left behind. Can't remember where I saw it. Thanks.
